Always a Great Stay!!

I have stayed many times at this hotel and always have an enjoyable stay. The rooms are very clean and spacious which is a find in New York where rooms are generally small. The full kitchen is an added bonus and the location can't be topped for getting anywhere in Manhattan.

Gigantic Room For Little Money

I loved this place! I was a little worried about this hotel until I checked in. What a great place to stay. The room was huge, one of the largest rooms I have ever stayed in. It was a little dated but who cares, the space was phenominal. I think this is the best value in NYC. Good location nice staff and I have nothing but good things to say about this place. It is a very nice 3 star hotel maybe a low 4 star. I will stay here from now on for every trip to New York.. GREAT GREAT GREAT

Entertainment tip: Long walk from hotel

See The Book of Mormon! It was my favorite Broadway show ever. One of the funniest shows ever! Do not miss it. It is sold out all the time. However, if you go to the box office, about 2 hours before the show. They have a few seats but always good ones.

Great place to stay

This hotel is at very good location. it is very close to grand central. And the room is much bigger than I expected. There's a living room with sofa, TV and table, a bedroom, a bathroom and a kitchen. I think even 3-5 people can stay in on suite. And when I book it with discount code, it only cost me $273 for one night. It was really great deal considering its location and overall comfort.
